Last updated on Monday, May 12, 2008

(PERU) - Four fire departments responded Saturday to a fire that engulfed Grant Home Furnishings in Downtown Peru.

The second story of the building is where the owners, David and Heather Grant, lived along with their three children. The family was not home at the time the fire started, and no one was injured.

Peru Police Chief Bill Raber said that while the cause was unknown, he believed it could have started in the basement.

The building is a total loss and the fire is still under investigation.
